Mobile Tank Farm Fire Fighting System

Project description

The Pulau Bukom manufacturing site in Singapore is Shell’s largest integrated refinery and chemicals site in the world. The facility can produce up to 500.000 barrels of oil per day and has a local tank storage facility. To enable fire fighting at the largest storage tanks, Shell required a mobile solution that would make use of the existing fire ring main.

For this project Hydrodieselhas delivered a complete mobile tank farm fire fighting system, suitable for hydrant pumping, enabling Shell to fight fires in storage tanks with diameter up till nearly 80 meters.
